Adam Hamilton, named by PBSs Religion and Ethics Newsweekly as one of the top "Ten People to Watch," has created an inviting new series of video-and-book studies on love and marriage, life issues, world religions, and Christian denominations. Hamilton calls these small-group studies "fishing expeditions," because they include tools for congregation wide and communitywide programs to draw in new members. Components include DVD, participants book, leaders guide, and pastors guide with CD-ROM. 6-8 sessions / 60-90 minutes
Christianity and World Religions: Wrestling With Questions People Ask is a video-based small-group study and outreach program that explores four major world religions- Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and Judaism and compares the beliefs of each with those of Christianity. This six-week study deals openly and honestly with questions people ask about other religions, including why we should believe the claims of Christianity over those of other faiths. As part of the study, author and presenter Adam Hamilton interviews a religious leader from each tradition. He treats the world religions with great respect, recognizing the unique contributions of each.
In examining these major world religions and the beliefs of their followers, the Reverend Hamilton urges us as Christians to build bridges with others so that we might grow in our faith, seek peace in our world, love our neighbor, and find positive ways to share the gospel.
For group or individual study, the book can be used by class participants during the study group meeting or at home for additional reflection. Includes detailed content for the six sessions.

Sachse First United Methodist5 Stars Out Of 5February 1, 2008Sachse First United MethodistOur Adult Sunday school class is using this study material and loves it. Our discussions are full of interesting information - some of our classmates work in the technology field and their co-workers are of believers in the faiths we are studying. They have "interviewed" their co-workers and have brought the information back to the class. Amazing how much we learn from first hand conversations!Adam Hamilton has done a great job in bringing the five religions together in an understandable format.
